SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, Texas – On Saturday, October 6, 2018, the Fort Brown Border Patrol Explorer Post 975 hosted their first “Live” competition in South Padre Island, Texas.
The Weslaco Station Explorer Post #964 prevailed and received five first place trophies, two second place trophies, and Overall Best Explorer Post of the competition as they attained the highest average from seven scenarios.
The teams competed in numerous law enforcement scenarios based on training received by law enforcement officers and Border Patrol agents.
